H2H Challenge - Back To School

We are still one week away from back to school in Victoria, BC, but are in full "Back To School" challenge mode over at H2H Challenge blog.
I created this candy package, with pick, for one of mine and my kid's favourite teachers.

I started by cutting this sweet little box with Artiste from Twilight cardstock. I inked all of the edges with Slate ink. The rolled flower was cut from Avonlea paper from Artiste, also.

The pic started with my colouring a wooden skewer with Twilight ink. I adhered it to the back of this yoyo flower I cut at 1.5, with Artiste, from Avonlea paper. I stamped with the Kudos stamp set that is included in the Artiste package. 

I added our fantastic Slate Satin Polka Dot Ribbon to the back of the yoyo flower. This pick is not secured in the box, so it could be stuck in a plant or the pic could be removed and it can become an award ribbon style badge.

I also stuffed the box with tic tac; chocolates; and gum for those moments when a teacher needs a wee bit of stress relief in her day!

Okay, now it is your turn to create something for our "Back to School" Challenge over at H2H Challenge blog.
